Studying for the LSAT / Re: taking June LSAT for waitlists
« on: March 10, 2008, 12:09:13 AM »
My thought is, I'm 30, so I am not waiting a year.  My LSAT was fairly late, my apps were fairly late, combine that with this cycle when many people will be waiting long, and the truth is, I will probably be waiting for a bunch of schools into the summer.  And if retaking that test might be the difference between going to Pace, and going to Brooklyn, Rutgers-Camden, or Fordham PT, why not?  It doesn't seem like there is really a downside except for the extra work, and I do think I have a chance of doing decently better than my previous 159. 

Damn, you're 30! That's old as hell for law school isnt it? 3 Years and u'll be 33 before u get a job in law, damn kid!

There was not a lack of clarity. I was just simply saying.

Getting the job and keeping the job are two different things. They do not give you stats for that.

73
Of course not. It's the prestige, network, and access to an excellent education. While a job (biglaw or anything else) is certainly not the complete end, the process of finding one is also less stressful without the pressures and insecurities of having to graduate within the top x% for a competitive advantage for summer jobs, internships, etc.

Can someone TITCR me? Cheers.

Everyone always acting like the best way to get a job is to not have any pressure on you. If you are basically guaranteed a job, more than likely, you are going to work less and with less desire (not everyone, but there will be people who are cocky just because they got into a t-14 or even a t-100.) The best thing that could happen to a lot of people is to have to compete to just get a job. A lot of Ivy league boys get OWNED (PWNED) in court on a daily basis, because they rested on their laurels.

Food for thought..

The question is how many seats are actually left as we get closer to the application deadlines?

probably not many, and the priority is to the applicants who applied first.

76
if u go to LSAC, and look at the applications - based on which ones ud like to go to, there is a little deadline next to the application..instead of acting helpless, just point and click.

I thought these were the rankings I was supposed to be working off of http://www.cooley.edu/rankings/overall2007.htm Uh oh.

lmao. Best Rankings...EVER.

Thank you TJCCARDOCO, we work very hard every year to produce the rankings. It is always nice to hear from appreciative students.

Look for the new rankings in April.

Can't wait.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Suffolk Law - Visit Review
« on: March 06, 2008, 11:20:18 PM »
Suffolk is a great place, I love their campus.

I do not understand why everyone bad mouths schools that are not the top 4 in Boston. Everyone always trashes Suffolk and NESL as not being able to get you a job. The way most of you come off sounding is a really big billboard that says DO NOT GO THERE, even if that is not what you said. It is the ridiculous wording used to describe prospects for Boston schools, not just in this thread, but predominantly in other threads. 

Coming out of those two schools, if you graduate in the top 1/2 of your class, you'll get a job. Not 80-125k coming out of school, but that is reserved for the t-14 schools. NESL is a good school, and not everyone is going to law school for Money.

Many people on the board always trash tier 4 schools and tier 3 schools, and i am really sick of it. Not because I will most likely be going to one but, the belief that unless you are going to a t100 school you cannot be a good lawyer is the way a lot of these threads come off sounding. We must as a group try to change these negative connotations associated with tier 3 and tier 4 schools not named Cooley or FCSL, I really don't find them helpful to anyone who asks questions.

This is so obviously fake.

True, but it does do a pretty good job of mocking our obsession with minute rankings flucuations.

Apparently this is already posted somewhere, though.  Must have missed that.


A lot of you are too obsessed with the ranking system. It's not the be all, end all decision making tool for jobs.
